This week NFL owners, General Managers, and head coaches are all down in Florida for the annual NFL meetings and as McDermott was leaving a meeting, he was surrounded by Buffalo media members when one of them asked if the coach had a preference if he wanted an open stadium or a domed one.
McDermott said he only wanted one thing...He wanted the stadium to be loud!
Both New York State Governor Kathy Hochul and Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz both confirmed that a stadium deal will be done and taxpayers in New York State will pay around $850 million dollars to help aid the construction of the new stadium.
The NFL Owners are giving Terry and Kim Pegula, the owners of the Bills a $200 million dollars loan which the Pegulas will also match with their own fiancing bringing another $400 million dollars to the project.
Overall the cost of the stadium should be around $1.4 Billion dollars and the stadium should be up and running by 2026.
So will the new stadium be open-air or dome? It really doesn't matter to the current head coach of the Bills because if 70,000+ members of Bills Mafia are in the stands it will be one thing.....LOUD!
